Material Conference 2017: Fine Art Ingredients of the Web - Goddur

The context of ideas from classical art such as the vanishing point and the perspective of the renaissance to the pixels of Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich. The devices and the tools that the creators of the web have permanently at hand.

Goddur works as a graphic design professor at the Icelandic Academy of the Arts in ReykjavĂ­k and is without a doubt Iceland’s best-known commentator on design issues.

He teaches mostly theory courses and will be discussing the history of technology and design with examples of perspective tesselations and other patterns. He’s been working in design since before the first Macintosh computers and has grown and learned with the technology.
